my SysV daemons not starting on boot

In my new F15_64 box, my SysV daemons are not starting on boot,
although I can start them with:

/etc/init.d/myDaemon start

chkconfig --list myDaemon
indicates start levels 3 and 5, and the links in /etc/rc.d are
in place and correct.  

Debug indicates that the daemon function is being called.
Also, the boot log says the daemon started.

But the myDaemon log shows nothing, and ps -ef does
not find it.  I tried putting a sleep(1) at the
start of myDaemon, but it didn't help.
Thanks for your help.
